Busou Shinki

00

Busou Shinki is a toyline of scantily clad and highly articulated robot-girls who can equip various pieces of armor and weaponry, apparently to battle each other. With that kind of source material for an anime adaptation, you know it’s gonna be gold. Interestingly enough though, Busou Shinki already had an anime adaptation a year earlier, albeit as a series of short ONAs titled Busou Shinki Moon Angel. But that’s not relevant for this, the first full-length TV series adaptation of this hella expensive toyline.

The direction they took this adaptation in is actually quite interesting – instead of, say, an alternate universe where these are all actual human beings with powers or full-sized cyborgs or something, it went with the narrative and fluff surrounding the toyline and had it so that all the Shinkis were actual 6-inch tall robots. In this story, Busou Shinki is still very much a franchise, but they are literally what their real-world counterparts pretend to be.

This combination of self-aware robots who are nonetheless still possessions and incredibly customisable and flexible battle options actually makes for quite the engaging, compelling and even intelligent series, that tackles difficult questions such as what it means to have agency, and the nature of slavery in a consumerist wor– ah, who am I kidding. It’s a slice-of-life comedy about sentient toys in varying states of undress.

So this should have been done a day or two ago but whatever, I was busy. Everything’s coming to an end though, and the next season ain’t that promising. A shame, I guess. Oh, and a bunch of subs were delayed.

Merry JoJomas!

Maybe it’s because it’s nearing the end of the season, maybe it’s because I have lots of course work to do, or maybe it’s because each week I don’t really have anything useful or interesting to say, but these posts are beginning to get pretty tedious to write. I’ll see it through until the end of the season, but who knows what after then, really.

Loveliness and hugs abound this week

So I got my Anime Secret Santa recommendations. Kure-Nai, Natsume Yuujinchou and Paradise Kiss. Not a bad selection imo, been meaning to check the latter two out for a while so it works for me. And they’re all single-cours! Meaning I’ll probably be able to watch all 3 before Christmas.

Kick-Heart reached its funding goal! This is a great thing, and I can’t wait to see the finished product.

In other news, my Yukiko figma arrived, but got hit by customs so I had to pay like another £12 to free her from the evil clutches of the Royal Mail. Grr. Either way, she’s a lovely figure with a great sculpt and better articulation than the Chie figma I already own, although she does her long + hard plastic hair limits the potential movement of her arms a fair bit. But the main problem? Her ‘smiling’ face looks more like she’s being super srs. Ah well.

We should all strive to be this rad in our day to day lives
